Although Des Peres has been inhabited since the 1700s, the area did not become a village until 1934. Many early settlers of Des Peres were German immigrants who traveled to the Midwest from Virginia and the Carolinas. They brought with them a passion of flowers which started the floral industry in Des Peres. That same passion from the German immigrants still remains today, through the presence of the greenhouses, Tomasovic and Eckelmann.
